“In the run-up to the governorship election, our party’s candidate for governor, Joseph Ewuga, resigned in favour of David Ombugadu of the PDP.
“He informed the party, and we informed the national body of our great party, but these party executives in Nasarawa State went ahead and endorsed the governorship candidate of another political party without consulting the Labour Party; they are being suspended today as a result.”
Ombugu added that a five-person committee had been formed and given two weeks to investigate the activities of the suspended members.
“Disciplinary actions will be taken against them in accordance with the party’s rules if they are found guilty,” he said.
